Great Food, friendly staff. the 3 course deal on Sundays can't be beat! Nice wine and beer list. Salt and pepper shrimp is a must! Ask for extra spice!

We loved the crispy halibut, the other dishes we ordered were good, but nothing special. The service was slow.

Was there on Christmas Day. Food was outstanding, everything we ordered was flawless. The restaurant is one street over from the Main Street on Rehoboth Beach. I will definitely return.

Seafood hot and sour soup - excellent. Pork dumplings very good! Our dinners were very good. Lemongrass Shrimp and General Tso. Was looking for different and typical. Both were tasty and freshly prepared! Service was great and friendly. Go. Enjoy!
